A Day Which Will Live in Infamy

December 7, 2008

The price for freedom is eternal vigilance.

Whether or not the government had foreknowledge/warnings regarding Pearl Harbor, it was a complete surprise to John Q Public.  Sixty years later on 9-11, we were again shocked by a surprise attack on American soil.

No matter our political or religious views, we all have the freedom to believe and observe those beliefs in our own fashion.  However, this benefit we enjoy does not come without high cost.  That cost is vigilance, an ever-gazing eye, watchful of those that would do us harm, or to those, both inside and outside our borders, that would seek to limit the freedoms we enjoy.

Freedom is never Free!  Be mindful, on this day of Remembrance, of those that have served and paid the ultimate price for your freedoms.
